My name is Tyler Jay.
I’m a writer, traveller, music-lover, forest firefighter, climber, and self-proclaimed mountain man. When I’m not walking through a burnt forest as a Wildland Firefighter, or obsessing over my next gear purchase, I like to spend my time traveling anywhere that sparks an interest in me. From Africa to Asia, Nepal to the East & West Coast of Canada, and most recently to Japan this blog serves as a record of those adventures, and lessons learned along the way.
This is an account of what I see, what I learn, people I meet, foods I eat, and beards I grow and see!
